As I've mentioned before, my family and I do quite a lot of camping, and one of the most useful pieces of equipment I have is my headlamp, the Petzl LED Headlamp Tikka Plus. They have done their best to make it look exciting and 'outdoorsy' but I still look like a fool in mine. I'd rather look silly though than be tripping up over things in the dark or scrabbling around on my hands and knees trying to find objects I've put down somewhere in the tent. Standard torches are all well and good, but using them means that you lose the use of one of your hands - a headtorch provides light whilst you have both hands free and is always shining where you're looking, i.e. ...

Why A Headlamp? ============== The wearer of a head-torch is never going to win any style awards - in fact you end up looking like a ridiculous cross between Rambo and a Dalek. Yet, the benefits headlamps provide far outweigh any self-consciousness or ridicule they attract. The most obvious plus is that, unlike with a normal torch, you are left with both hands free, and there is no need to sandwich it between your knees or under your chin when dexterity is required. Headlamps also follow your head movements, so wherever your eyes fall is automatically illuminated. The best aspect for the outdoor adventurer or traveller is that head-torches are light, ...

Petzl are one of the most prestigious mountaineering / climbing companies around. They were founded by Fernand Petzl, who himself was a professional extreme caver, and like most pro`s he had an idea on how to make the antiquated equipment he had to use, better and began to design new head torches and other equipment. Nowadays Petzl are known amongst the climbing fraternity to produce medium to high quality, medium - high spec gear, and have been at it for some time. These days however they get allot of competition from other high spec companies such as Black Diamond and Grivel. Petzl are especially good at making head torches, they make them light ...

Petzl headtorches have been constantly upgraded and they always surprise me by how they can add something so simple but it makes a big difference. Ive had Petzl headtorches for about 10 years, when they went to LED mode it was shocking that you didnt have to carry a spare bag full of batteries and spare bulbs to last you a weekend. Following this they added the 3 levels of brightness to further conserve battery life. Then they added the flashing mode for those needing to attract attension when lost (however more often used for campsite disco's). The Tikka plus have added a red LED, no more do you need to blind fellow campers everytime you move your ... Read the complete review

I bought one of these over a year ago and it is without a doubt the best headtorch i have ever owned! At first it seems quite expensive at £30-£40 but believe me it is well worth it compare to cheaper versions. The first thing i love about this headtorch is that it is so comfortable. If your wearing a headtorch for a long time it is very important that it is comfortable and this really is. I used to own a headtorch that had a battery pack at the back of the head, but the problem was it kept sagging and was irritating to where. It is comfortable for two reasons. Firstly, it is extremely lightweight meaning that after a while you forget that you are wearing it. ... Read the complete review
